Freedom of Information

Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA)

Ontario’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) gives individuals a right of access to records held in hospital’s custody or control. As of January 1, 2012, Humber River Hospital became subject to the Act.

Humber River Hospital is committed to conducting its business in a manner that promotes transparency and accountability. It is the practice of HRH, in keeping with FIPPA, to make its operational records publicly available wherever possible. However, there are certain exclusions and exemptions from the right of access such as the right to the protection of personal information.

Making an FOI Request

To make an access request for general records or for records of personal information held by HRH, please fill out the Freedom of Information Request form. You must clearly describe the records you are requesting.

Please note that only written FOI requests are accepted. You can use our form, or write a letter. If you write your own letter, it must state that you are making the request under FIPPA and it must addressed to Humber River Hospital.

The FOI Office will respond to your request within 30 days.

Completed forms should be sent to:
